An exhibition of recently completed paintings by Mark Weighton opened today in the Gallery in the Crypt at St Martin-in-the-Fields.

This collections of work reflects on Unity in a world where everything appears to exist in isolated separation. Influenced by the universal language of sacred geometry; Islamic, Christian, Buddhist, Vedic and Native America mandalas, these paintings subscribe to the perennial wisdom at the heart of all religion: the unifying power of Love.

This ambitious body of work playfully encourages a colourful, cosmological vision of interconnected, infinite possibility; of dynamic unity in diversity. Ultimately, these are works which concern ourselves with the expression of faith as a strategy for living happily with ourselves and each other in this contemporary, secular age.

Mark Weighton was born in Guildford in 1965. He has shown his artwork extensively nationally and internationally over two decades with exhibitions in France, Italy, Brazil and the USA.

Until 23 June.
